hi there i have a dvr in the next room which records cctv around the house but you can plug in an ethernet cable in the back of it and connect it to the computer so i can view and record the cameras on the computer with the software it come with.
so i brought a 100m cat5e network cable, rj45 connectors and a crimp and made a 5 meter long straight through cable and connected it to the dvr and the pc but nothing happend. so i then created a crossover cable and connected it and it started to connect then it came up with limited or no connectivity. i keep trying to reset the dvr but same message keeps on coming up what am i sposs to do as in the user manaul thier is information on only static IP, dynamic IP and dynamic IP of PPPoE (dsl). on the dvr thier is a ethernet port on the back which i have currently connected the crossover network cable to. and in the dvr menu there is a section on TCP/IP setup.
Could some help me as soon as possible as it is very essential to get this working asap.
